Stop Me!

Stop me if you think that you’ve heard this one before…

I’ve been stocking up on sale yarns for a while now and for every skein I’ve bought, I have a project in mind.  The problem is that I haven’t completed the projects!

Funny Crochet T-shirt.

I’ve promised myself that I will NOT buy any new yarn until I use up a good deal of the fuzzy stuff that I have.  (I know better than to say I won’t buy any until I use it ALL up.)

Anyhow, I was browsing Facebook today, when what to my wondering eyes should appear… but a premium yarn store less than 10 minutes from my house, where they have a gorgeous selection of yarns, hold evening classes, and I do believe I saw a glass of wine in one of the photos on their page!

I need you to stop me, oh, stop me…

In case you can’t read it, this funny crochet t-shirt says, You may see a pile of unused yarn but I see, 5,976 projects in my queue.  If you need this shirt as badly as I do right now, you can order it from Zazzle.  If you use the following affiliate link to make your purchase, I’ll get a small royalty from the sale.  This won’t cost you anything extra.

The shirt would be fun to wear but it  would be even more fun to gift to someone you love who has WAY TOO MUCH YARN.  Like I do! 

And just in case you’ve picked up on the lyrics I’ve included in this post, here’s a video of the song they go to:  The Smiths, “Stop Me If You Think You’ve Heard This One Before.”

    I’d wear the tee but it would be a lie because of my queue, or at least my Ravelry queue, which I’ve stopped using because I was just using it as a “I like it” list.

    Robin, go to the crafting night and confess you are a yarn addict in recovery, maybe they will help you complete 2-3 projects for every project you purchase!

  4. I understand this post all too well. So many possibilities in a single skein, it’s hard not to collect. And I love the Smiths connection here. 🙂

    LOL at that shirt!!! I wish I had a yarn shop near me!! I would love to have a little shop like that instead of always needing to go to the big box stores. I don’t think Michaels or Joann’s would appreciate it if I brought a bottle of wine and whipped out one of my wips in the yarn aisle! 😀

  9. Ha ha I love buying yarn, I used to feel guilty but feel now that buying the yarn is actually just as enjoyable. I’ve just finished a course for work so have a little more free time so I can spend more time crocheting!
